The real estate blog Estately ran hundreds of search terms through Google Trends to find out what residents of each state searched for more than people in any other state.

Louisianians were alarmed by the Blue Bell ice cream recall, and Alabamians were interested in presidential candidate Ben Carson.

But Mississippians were apparently highly concerned over the Ashley Madison leak, or maybe just which of their friends and neighbors were on the list.

In no particular order, Mississippi's terms were:

- Ashley Madison (online dating website marketed to people in committed relationships)

- Straight Outta Compton (2015 film)

- B.B. King (blues musician who passed away in 2015)

- U.S. Supreme Court

- Bobbi Kristina Brown (daughter of singer Whitney Houston; passed away in 2015)

- Booty (there was a lot of talk about “booty” in 2015)

- Megyn Kelly (FOX TV personality)

- Common Core State Standards Initiative
